Morans has many personalities depending on the time you visit. The morning cake and coffee is recommended, the choice of cakes, bread and biscuits vast and all homemade, good portions and good value, but let down by very poor coffee; taste, size, price, temperature. The bar menu hasn't changed for a very long time and has only a couple of uninspiring vegetarian options, a specials board, again never vegetarian. The atmosphere varies, with the restaurant being lighter and airier and the bar area very dark. Newspapers available. Service varies, staff polite but not engaging. Restaurant is mediocre, so would recommend a visit for morning tea and cake. Toilets ok'ish, no baby change facility.

Lost count of the number of times I've enjoyed this restaurant .Doesn't matter what time of day the food & service is always excellent. Moran's is great for morning coffee with home made cakes to die for!! Lunchtime the bar menu is good value & really tasty. In the evening both the bar & the restaurant are buzzing with a good atmosphere.

On a good day it is excellent with fairly priced food, large portions, brilliant wine menu, good speed of service and really friendly waiters and bar staff. There is a great menu, it's just a shame the result depends on the chef. If you go in when the lady chef is in (who I think is actually the head chef) then you should probably just walk out again. Food can take ages and be over seasoned. Also, the woman who owns it isn't very nice and seems to set everyone on edge.
The wine bar is really fun and always has a busy atmosphere at weekends but nice and chilled in the week.

This restaurant has a really friendly informal atmosphere and is very inviting. Menu is really unfussy as is the service, food was delivered quickly and well cooked, wide variety also available. Service was good apart from there were hundreds of members of staff and we kept getting asked for the drinks order from each of them! Very cheap and enjoyable evening!

Morans is always busy, guaranteeing a good atmosphere if you are not confined to the basement section. The food is good hearty grub with generous portions but nothing innovative or refined. As such, the pricing is perhaps ambitious and (like many mid-range restaurants in Cheltenham) £2-3 a dish too much. If you are dining in Moran's at a weekend, be patient - service is slow.
